Hey, D! You've been pretty quiet of late. How's the fishing these days, are things going well for you? And if you ever do run in to Phil and Bob let them know that it's open house for them over here as far as I'm concerned.

Actually, I had the band over for Gazpacho last week. They send their regards to everyone!

Fishing is good this season. I have not caught a quality shark yet, but some nice tunas!

All the best to all!

This just cracks me up.
It's good you know your mind, I guess.
I'm just curious, though - do you have no sentimentality for them, even? Even if they aren't nearly as good, it's still Bob and Phil, you know? Old times sake? I mean they aren't the Grateful Dead but they don't SUCK.

Cliff, I understand where you're coming from on this. But, form all reports Further is "kickin' ass and takin' names". I said, after the Easter debacle in Greensboro that I would never attend anothr "Reunion Band" show. From what I've heard on the archive, if they were playing within my travel "comfort zone" and the tickets were reasonable(not that they were for The Dead's Spring 2009 Tour), I would strongly consider seeing Furhtur.

Of course that's me, and I'm not you.

Furthur is better than the Dead! Weir even told CNBC news that most people just can't afford those 2009 ticket prices. Furthur 2010 prices average around $40 if you don't patronize the thieves like Stub Hub, which is really a scalpers' website.

Hi Bill - I have to admit I'd been pretty dismissive of the whole Furthur enterprise too but when amosearle pointed out the killer setlist for the 7-3-10 show I decided to give it a listen and I think it's pretty good. When it works best is when John Kadlecik forgets that he's supposed to be Jerry Garcia and just cuts loose and has fun.

You are missing out, dude. How much effort does it take to get out of the house for one night? Aren't you in the NYC area? They have played so many shows there in the past 8 months...

One thing I realized a couple nights ago in Ottawa was that there is no way to truly replicate a Phil Bomb on a home stereo. That man is an absolute musical genius and is still very much on top of his game. Once again, you are missing out... but you may never know that.

"This show still does not get the attention and love it deserves . Probably never will."

I'm afraid I cant agree with that. 6/24/70 is not only a certain top ten show of 1970, it's absolutely one of the top fifty all-time classsic performances!

I agree , but why has it always been a hard sell ? If folks listen to it , usually that's all it takes . Getting folks to listen has always been difficult part .

6 - 24 - 70 transports me . So many mind blowing things going on , beginning with the music . The timing of everything , Pig's gun shots , the ' bombs ' , and the pyro magic . And some of the best crowd ' noise ' , and face melting . Part of the canon . Essential . Olympian .

People WHO haven't listened to this yet . WHY ? It's a Sat. night . Find a quiet place and maybe some headphones . GIVE IT a go :) Try NFA on

Before the revision I can see how cryptic and odd my post was . I just dashed something off quickly , before I consumed the thread about 6 - 24 - 70 ( see , can't let go w/ out the full date ). Instant gratification . don't you know .

Haven't been keeping up, Rob; how bad is it for you over there? What's your high and low? Suppose I could google it, but just a tad curious (not enough to work at it).

What I am getting to is while living in Maine, I was shocked at what wimps the locals were. It was 95 F, with 90% humidity, but at night it dropped into the low 70s (60s by morning), and coming from the SW, I thought it quite nice (though bldgs without AC--since this rarely happens there--could be brutal; you'd be at your desk with roughly those same temps!). The entire heat wave lasted three or four days, but some locals spent their nights in their cars with AC on...

All depends on what you're used to I suppose...

Oh, and Ring Le O: so much for your gender neutral presence hereabouts, eh? I know it wasn't a big deal, but seems as many know now as before...except for that one poster that was a bit slow on the uptake.

It's probably around 29/30C (88/90F) right now so by no means outrageous by your standards. Still,it is, as you say, what you're used to, and I just don't cope well with the heat. I have been known in the past to grey out if I get too hot - so heaven knows how I'd cope with Arizona.

2 or 3 clicks , WT ? He 's in the mid-lands ? It's not a continent .
Maine wimps ? Try a winter or two . Those folks have 'cold ' blood . They wilt at 85 or so . Except the fancies in Portland , of course . They wilt when the drink runs out , or when the tourists leave ( well , on that one , it would include most of the state , too )
Isn't it adaptability and moderation re: the heat ? Cranking it up here on the EC this week , way out of the comfort zone and so quickly . An Indian summer heatwave is small change by then , after months of summer weather . Sorry for my cranky , disorganized writing . Thank God the T-storms are on the way , but still 71 dew point after . :(
( give me the heat any day , keep the humidity )

Oh yeah--it was the winter there that killed me off; way too much work just to survive. Seriously. No wonder EVERYONE was counting the days til they moved south for good.

Not sure, but gather you're somewhere back east, right? I never got the humidity biz; IE, living here in the SW, and then in TX, and parts of the deep South before and after ME, I would take 99F with 99% over 120F with 0% any day...don't go for much of anything else to do with the South (sorry, Sons of the Confederacy et al), but the problem with the "dry heat" notion is that it still means it's hot everywhere (even in shade), whereas I always appreciated you could get in the shade or mow your lawn in the early AM and be reasonably comfortable in the SE...

But, as you and Rob note, and as a biologist, I should've made more of a pt of it, your body does adapt and then is not capable of the appropriate responses given skin/blood/etc changes that have occurred when you suddenly face the unusual extreme...

Hey--no sweat (har, har)...by now you have realized "we" (regulars) do this all the time, which I attribute to a combination of most everyone having a good sense of humor, and the awk web communication biz...ie, writing without the benefit of rapid face to face communication that would probably avoid 88% of our conflicts. With our attempts at constant humor, and the easily overinterpreted/overstated positions we pontificate on, it's only natural...

If we tallied up the number of times Rob and I have gone at it, only to in the end realize we probably agree on about 96% of all substantive issues in the world today (the one exception that comes to mind recently is that most egregious fault: "FTWJB" [failure to worship Jack Bruce]), it would be a very long list...yet, I am proud to call the rascally Scot a good friend.

Hope your t-storms lower your humidity for ya soon! Ours out here help, but actually raise the humidity dramatically while lowering the temp (we need the water, though, it goes without saying).

Pouring rain here now, absolutely pouring, but way better than the brutal heat of a few days ago.

I wasn't really trying to be gender-neutral, honestly, I just thought with a handle not instantly identifiable as female it would reduce knee-jerk responses from certain types of people and it seems to have worked. I don't mind if people use my real name. It's sort of like putting a gender-neutral name in the phone book or on your mailbox in an apartment building, while of course in a short time everyone in the building knows who you are anyway. Deters riff-raff :)

It did not occur to me at the time that I would end up being called Ringo, and people would think I was a Ringo Starr fan. Oh well.
